To help manage the waste generated with spring cleaning and end of season move-out, the Town of Vail will supply free dumpsters for residents beginning Monday, April 18 through Wednesday, April 20 – or until full. These dumpsters are being provided free of charge for local residents courtesy of Vail Honeywagon. Dumpsters will be at two locations: the Park-n-Ride lot in East Vail and the North Trail lot in West Vail.
These dumpsters are intended for items too large for regular trash pickup. All federal, state and local waste rules apply which prohibit: hazardous waste, refrigerators, freezers, electronic waste and construction waste. To dispose of e-waste or household hazardous waste properly, please check with the Eagle County Household Hazardous Waste Facility at eaglecounty.us/recylingwaste. In addition, Vail Honeywagon collects e-waste twice a month at its drop-off location at 160 Nottingham Ranch Road in Avon.
Disposal of refrigerators and freezers must have Freon removed which can be done at the Eagle County Landfill or through Trinity Recycling in Gypsum. Contact your waste hauler, Eagle County Landfill, or visit www.lovevail.org for more information on hard to dispose of items.
